May 2018 Playmate Shauna Sexton
just recently quit her job as a veterinary technician. Up until August 2018, she’d been working full-time in an emergency clinic that specialized in smaller breeds of animals, and working as a model on the side. She’d been working in her chosen field and steadily modeling on the side — already on the path to fame — when she met a guy and began dating him. That guy was Academy Award winner and newly divorced and single Ben Affleck
. The resulting press microwaved her career overnight. Again, the steamy brunette was headed there anyway, but the sudden attention surprised even her.“
I don’t classify myself as a model,” she told Playboy
in the spring, “[I think] it’s so cliché nowadays for people to say, I’m a model. I need to have some sort of backup plan.” At the time, she did: Her first passion, which was saving animals lives. “Modeling is my plan B,” Sexton said
at the time, “If it takes off, I’d be stoked. You’re only outwardly pretty for so long!” It’s likely that grounded, realistic approach to life that helped keep her head on straight when the press exploded over her reported romance. She has left veterinary work behind — at least for now — and is staying mum about the status of her rumored relationship.
By the way, Shauna loves throwing back whiskey, eating a ton of tacos, getting up before the sun to workout
, and a guy that can handle her sarcasm. Not that she’s necessarily on the market these days, but it’s always good to know this type of factoid about your favorite Playmate of the Month.
